Jim,
Thank you for your video review.

While I'm old school, and am having a real hard time with the now pilotless aircraft. It kind of seems fitting that this new generation of aircraft is being modeled by a brand new model company.

I paid close attention to the level of detail, and it certainly looked as good as anything I've seen to date by any of the standard kit manufactures. I'll be very interested in following a build to see just how well everything fits together, but I would be surprised if there was any major construction issues.

Joel
